Avoiding procrastinating by standing up while using my phone Watch

    So basically I use my phone too much instead of studying etc. so I was wondering whether it would be a good idea to make a rule where I can only use my phone whilst stood up (unless I need it to study or make a phone call etc ). I think this would probably cut down on the amount of time I spend on my phone when I wake up and before I got to sleep.
    Does anyone have any input on this? How would you advise me to start using my phone less?
    Btw this is probably in the wrong forum.

    I believe there are apps you can download which restrict your phone's functionality during preset times. Might be useful?

    That's quite a good idea, or you could turn it off, put it in a drawer, leave it downstairs so you can't be bothered to go and get it, or use one of those apps where you can grow a tree if you don't use your phone for a specified amount of time

    How about applying a screen lock with a complex and LONG password so you probably can't be bothered to type it in constantly.
